James Bouknight Stats

Ever since his debut in the MacDuffie School, Bouknight was an incredible combo guard. But unfortunately his school was not as recognised as other programs. Despite averaging an insane 19.3 points and 5.0 rebounds per game, Bouknight was only the 53rd best player coming out of the 2019 class.

Another major reason for the same was the terrible injury that the 6'5" guard suffered in January 2018 when he torn his meniscus. Although the then 17-year-old made a solid comeback, concerns regarding his injury were still prevalent thus his stock initially dropped.

But Bouknight was ready to prove his doubters wrong. Averaging 13 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists, the 19-year-old was impressive. But the Huskies guard was not done. Instead of declaring for the 2020 draft, Bouknight opted to commit to the Huskies for a second year running.

This worked wonders for the 6'5" guard. Becoming the primary scoring option for UConn, the 20-year-old certainly showed his class. Averaging an incredible 18.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists, Bouknight led his team all the way to the first-round of the NCAA tournament. The 6'5" is a born leader and can be an instant spark plug off the bench or the main scoring option as well.
